Subject: More about Short History of Mississippi Valley
It was published in 1902, by Houghton, Mifflin & Co., a company that is renowned for publishing educational material. The reference works I find here, by this publisher seem to be very reliable in their writing is ok, more readable, less wordy than some early histories, etc.
The Table of Contents includes detailed and clear information of each chapter and there is a five-page index.
There isn't much Native American information. However there's a detailed history of slavery in the U.S., begins on p. 161.
I also like it cause it's short, 230 pages.
Thanks again to www.archive.org for this and so many histories available at no cost. Just this month I joined the site. It took only three minutes to set up a monthly donation, with a very simple, clear and very safe process of signing up. (The sign up is handled by www.amazon.com.)
It feels good to give to an archiving service which is about education and free speech for all. Archive.org has changed the landscape of electronic books and access of history. And at this point they need donations in order to survive. It felt good to give back to them.
